BREAKING: JAMB Rejects Pleas to Extend 2024 UTME Registration Deadline

Abuja, Nigeria – The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has reiterated its position that the 2024 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) registration window will not be extended. This comes in response to online pleas from candidates and advocates urging the board to reconsider its deadline.

On Twitter, user DON-ZARK (@KILLER280824) pleaded with JAMB to extend the registration period, citing hardship as a reason for some potential candidates’ inability to register on time. He tweeted: “Jamb please 🙏 😭 help us extend the registration period” in reply to JAMB’s official handle @JAMBHQ.

JAMB responded, stating their adherence to a pre-determined schedule and the potential disruption extending the registration period could cause to other programs and agencies within the Ministry of Education. The board tweeted: “JAMB, like other sister agencies in the ministry of education follows its programs as scheduled for the year. Altering a program would not only affect other programs but also hinder the schedules of other agencies. As such, 2024 UTME registration will not be extended.”

The 2024 UTME registration commenced on January 15th and officially closed on February 26th. The examination itself is scheduled to take place between April 19th and 29th.

This decision has sparked mixed reactions. While some understand the need for JAMB to maintain its schedule, others express concerns about potential candidates who might have missed the deadline due to unforeseen circumstances.

The House of Representatives had previously urged JAMB to consider a two-week extension, citing economic hardship as a barrier for some families. However, JAMB ultimately opted to maintain the original deadline.
